Too scratchy and light. Bad tactile feedback. At best an average switch. Even with maticulous lubing they are not up to scratch (pun intended)

Feels really nice to type on with its light but clicky feeling but not as much on gaming. Sometimes when you have to press 1 or 2 keys fast (which is common for rhythm games) it feels nice when you are pressing both really close one after another. Because it's light it's easy to do and the clicky feeling is great when you press.

FIrst switch I've had. Compared to the blues, they are much less "clicky". I prefer these over the blues for sure. However, I wish there were a little less pretravel between activation.

Good switches, feel nice when typing. Not as durable as Cherry's though (had a switch or two go a bit goofy, required switch replacement).

Great all around switches, the experience is obviously dependent on the keyboard you're using

Rattling metallic sound and really loud switch when used at night

Definitely good for gamers and typists. Tactile bump is barely felt but it is noticeable in certain situations. The best thing with this switch is its cheap price.

Having just 45cN force they're easy to press, but makes them lazy on release, giving a sticky feeling, especially on larger keys like Shift and Space bar. Wouldn't recommend for gaming. The typing is somewhat better, but after fitting some rubber o-rings to lower the noise, the typing isn't as good. But the real problem here is the bump which occurs after 2-3mm pre-travel and doesn't even trigger
